Ah. So if you just loosened the nut you're still left with the chuck stuck onto the taper. If the hook is flipped up behind the nut then the nut can't move towards the headstock so it pushes the chuck towards the tailstock. And that releases it from the tape.
Got it!

The hook fills the space behind the take-up nut, so that it can be
used to push the chuck off when loosening.
